When researchers find similarities in development between very different cultures, what implications might such findings have for the nature-nurture issue? Provide specific examples.
The nature and nurture issues states that the development of the human is through the nature, the environment in which they are raised and through nurture, the heredity that is stemmed in their family and in their close circle throughout their lives. The human development is a cultural process that is affected by both the heredity and the environment in which the child is born and raised. The biological heritage helps the child learn how to speak and behave and learn while the environment develops more hooned senses like hoe to survive, compare and differentiate, accept and be flexible. The similarities of the two different culture brought up can be considered as the hard worked connects that are already stored in the human brain. The heredity explanation is the best when the similarities are concerned but it is not entirely and totally true because the certain skills are developed and certain mind sets are developed even when people live in entirely different cultures. The explanation of heredity may be suitable when the cultures are extremely different, and geographically distant.
Still the cultural parallelism exists when the completely different cultures and people develop the similar ideas and solutions to problems. When the children act the same way as they are young, it is developed out of the hard wired code in the mind of safety, affection and belongingness, but at the later stage the development is sometimes similar even when the cultures are different and located far apart. The cultural parallelism is through the development of cultural characteristics in two different cultures that are very similar. These cultural characteristics are also seen to be stemmed in the cultures independently and are often sought. For instance, the cultures whether they are form eastern countries, or western, even the remote tribal people look at their parents and elders with respect, give them proper place in their lives and help them when they are old and weak. In is a cultural norm and is developed through nurture and environment that lead the human brain to code the respect of parents as something important and valued.
Similarly the fission is seen in cultures that were previously developed and followed in a region before it was divided and now that these divided regions have different languages, religions and values, there are still similarities that often lead to misunderstand between two different cultures. For instance, the culture of India, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka. These cultures are different but there are similarities between the people and how they see their culture and follow their values. To them such difference will be stark but to outsiders there are more similarities tan differences.
The implication to the Nature-nurture issues will be that the human development takes place with both nature and nurture and that human is effected by a large environment after they are develop in the engaged environment with other cultures that sometimes overall each other.
